EXCESSIVE IS ONLY A STARTING POINT
Hello, I am Frank Benefiel, co-owner of Arizona Classics with my wife Mary. Arizona Classics has been in business for over 8 years in Tempe, Arizona. After running a large wholesale bakery for 30 years I decided I wanted to play with my cars full-time. I began my career playing with cars at the age of 4, helping my dad out in the garage. I spent my youth repairing and customizing my pedal cars and bicycles. I graduated to go-carts and mini-bikes and then cars and motorcycles. I was always buying, selling and trading.
The first rule here at Arizona Classics is to have fun. The second rule is to do the job right with exceptional craftsmanship and imagination. My primary business is the sale of cars and trucks and anything else with wheels. I also do restorations and some repair on vintage cars and hot rods. Shop time is a very reasonable $50 hour and I don't generally take on more than one vehicle at a time so your car is my priority.
I grew up in Wichita Kansas with good Midwestern values. I have lived in The Phoenix area, Ahwatukee, for the last 22 years.
The shop has become a senior center of sorts. I have a number of geriatric gentlemen that come in to help out and share their knowledge and experience and we have a good old time. It seems like we always have one of their projects going here.
The one thing you can count on here at Arizona Classics is fair and honest treatment and no "hard sell". The one thing I am not is a salesman. If you want one of my vehicles, that is great. If not, that's ok too.
My dad and I, 2005
